May 14 (Reuters) - Junior oil and gas explorer Antrim Energy Inc AEN.TO posted a wider first-quarter loss, hurt by lower oil sales volumes due to the sale of its Puesto Guardian field in Argentina.

Antrim, which has assets in the UK North Sea and Argentina, said it expects daily production in Argentina to average about 1,800 net barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) in 2010.

For the first quarter, average production in Argentina increased 15 percent to 1,835 boep/d.

Antrim posted net loss of $2.1 million or 2 cents per share, for the quarter, compared with a loss of $1.8 million, or 1 cent a share, a year ago.

Oil and gas revenue decreased marginally to $3.1 million.
